Those of you who were here last year at this time will remember that we carried, the audio of and some pictures (videos when the speaker agreed) from the Newman Lectures, sponsored by the University of East Anglia, and the Diocese of East Anglia. We are again going to carry them, as they become available, barring technical glitches, which do happen, as we all know.
This year has a very distinguished group of presenters
- 4 April: Francis Campbell, Vice-Chancellor, St Mary’s University, Twickenham
- 11 April: Dr. Graham James, The Bishop of Norwich
- 18 April: Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, Former Archbishop of Westminster
- 25 April: Bishop Philip Egan, Bishop of Portsmouth
I’m very excited about this lineup, and also again working with John, Andrew, and Siobhan. So if you can’t make it to Norwich, don’t miss out completely.
THE CHURCH IN SOCIETY AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO THE STATE
The first Newman lecture this spring was by Francis Campbell. His CV is most impressive:
Currently Vice-Chancellor of St Mary’s University, Twickenham, Francis has had a long and distinguished career, working as – amongst other things – Policy Advisor and Private Secretary to the Prime Minister, Senior Policy Director with Amnesty International, and British Ambassador to the Holy See from 2005 to 2011.
Probably wouldn’t hurt to add for us Americans, a British Vice-Chancellor is an American university president.
Enjoy, a most interesting lecture.
